Our small conference room is suitable for meetings, training, workshops, interviewing, and smaller presentations. It is a pleasant room in two sections - a meeting area and an anti-room where your refreshments will be provided. There is plenty of natural daylight, comfortable seating, air conditioning, and the room is decorated with canal related posters. Free Wi-Fi is provided. We are in a highly accessible location within walking distance of King's Cross, St. Pancras, and Euston stations and excellent Underground bus and local rail services. A cheap meeting room need not be a poor one and the room is suited to entertaining business clients or guests as well as internal meetings.
Many people hire meeting rooms in London that are just plain boring, in business meeting venues that are even more uninteresting! Our meeting room is a comfortable, flexible room that is economic but our standards are still high. Delegates can normally view the museum during breaks.
Our charges start at £99 plus VAT and include your self service refreshments facility. We charge a fixed fee for usage between 1000 and 1630 and supplements for earlier starts or later finishes. Different prices apply to evening meetings. Tea, coffee, and biscuits are always included in the basic charges so you don't need to pay hotel prices for your refreshments. An optional rapid booking system (with deposit payment online by card) keeps administration to a minimum. Cheap doesn't mean nasty - you will be as comfortable as in a typical hotel.
The room is available for booking at any time of the day or evening. The standard booking times are 1000-1630 but an earlier start or later finish can be arranged, with notice, at extra cost.
Please note that bookings for the small conference room are not accepted for Saturdays or Sundays earlier than six weeks prior to the date. This is due to the regular use of the room in conjunction with larger weekend private functions. An exception can occasionally be made where the pattern of bookings for the month is already known well in advance so it is worth letting us know that you're interested earlier than six weeks before. Weekend bookings starting before 1000 or ending after 1630 may be possible but should be booked in good time.

When you are booking a meeting room in central London, or near King's Cross or St. Pancras, our small conference room / meeting room is ideal. It is a relaxed, pleasant place for meetings, training, interviewing, and small scale lunches and dinners. It is an airy room with plenty of natural light, with an exhibition of canal posters and pictures not on public display. The conference room is an unusual combination of a main meeting space, and an anti-room, divided by a narrower opening. We have 12 comfortable upholstered conference chairs, and tables are arranged to suit your needs. The anti-room is normally used for refreshments and can also be useful if you need a place for materials, literature or other things for your event. We can provide flip charts and a projector. Free Wi-Fi Internet access is available in the room.
Our self service refreshments are included in the charges. We provide a table equipped with a kettle, and all the ingredients to make your own tea and coffee as and when you want it. Disposible cups are supplied, as are selected alternative teas such as fruit, green or Earl Grey tea. So far as practicable we use Fair Trade ingredients. A supply of good quality biscuits is provided. Both china and disposable cups are available. This is informal and completely flexible. However if you are entertaining clients or VIP guests we can offer a more formal service with staffing, ground coffee, etc. at a supplementary charge so please let us know what you need and we'll quote for your exact requirements
The furniture is flexible and can be arranged to suit you. Round tables are also available at a supplement of £10 for one, £15 for two. These seat up to 10 people each for dining, up to 8 for meetings, or up to 6 per table for meetings with a presentation, where everyone needs to see the screen or speaker. The supplement covers round disposable table cloths that you can use as a brainstorming tool - write down your thoughts and take away the cloth at the end!
